Delivered finished tiki's and sold one at the LA Roadster show. Happy and satisfied customers all around. Was a great swapmeet. Hotrods are my first love.I have a lot of hotrod friends. Somehow I looked pissed in that photo. I was tired and hot. Oh well! I'm the one not smiling. Scott from Deluxe Speed is smiling.

Hotrods and tiki's just seem to go together. All my friends have killer cars. That's what we do.

Got into another carve this weekend. Just a little fellow. Nothing special really. Using up some smaller pieces before they split in this heat. Damn it dries out fast here when it's a 105 everyday. Gonna get to 110 this weekend. Whew! More details are to be added to this one. Not finished yet.

Been a month or so since I had the urge to carve. Started on this one the day before yesterday. Still got a long way to go but I felt like sharing.

I love the eyes on the last one...I always think the eyes make or break a carve (for me)...I also like the previous one in the voodoo lounge...the color looks great too.. it looks like you have a nice set up there

Very cool. I like the way that the feet just blend into the base. How are you going to do the toes?

Made some more progress on this one but it aint worth a picture yet. Maybe after I work on it some more tomorrow it will look like something. Not sure on the feet yet. I'm still mulling that one over. This log is harder than most I've done. The wood is fighting me. I'll make something out of it yet. Stay tuned.

This ain't what it seems. It's more! Not done yet. Still some more shaping to do around the noggin'. It will get a few more embellishments.

Had some time today to get some more done on this fella. Still got a bone to put in his nose and some finish sanding. It's getting there.
